Fronteer Announces New Corporate Appointments

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 27, 2007) - Fronteer Development Group (Fronteer) (TSX:FRG)(AMEX:FRG) ("Fronteer" or "Company") is pleased to announce that Mr. Chris Lee (P.Geo.) has joined the Company as Chief Geoscientist. This new appointment fills a crucial role in Fronteer as its key projects advance towards feasibility, and as the Company continues to seek growth through ongoing discoveries, and acquisitions.

Previously a Principal Consultant with SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc., Chris specializes in project evaluations, structural analysis, grade control and resource estimation, and has applied these skills across a broad spectrum of deposit types around the world. During his recent seven year tenure with SRK, Chris worked on more than 60 mining projects, from grassroots exploration to full feasibility and producing operations.

"We are delighted that Chris has decided to join the Fronteer team," says Dr. Mark O'Dea, President & CEO. "He brings a wealth of specialized experience to our growing company and will play a vital role in our team of scientific and business experts."

We are also pleased to announce that Mr. Ian Cunningham Dunlop (P.Eng.) has been appointed Vice-President, Exploration. Ian previously held the position of Exploration Manger for Canada and Turkey at Fronteer, and he is ideally suited for his new role as VP.

Ian will be replacing Dr Rick Valenta who will be returning home to Australia at the end of March. On behalf of the Company we wish Rick the very best in his future endeavours and thank him for his important role in building a strong foundation for Fronteer.

With a portfolio of high-profile projects, a solid footing in both the precious and strategic metals markets, and a healthy treasury, Fronteer is well-positioned for the next level of corporate development in 2007.


Fronteer is a rapidly evolving company committed to building long term value through ongoing discoveries and strategic acquisitions.
